President Donald Trump boasts about drawing a large crowd at a hurricane relief event (Screen cap).
President Donald Trump visited Texas on Tuesday to survey the damage done to the state by Hurricane Harvey -- and he once again couldn't resist the urge to boast about the large crowd he managed to draw during a public appearance to talk about the event.
Addressing a crowd of supporters in the city of Corpus Christi, Trump marveled at the number of people who showed up to greet him during his visit.
"What a crowd!" Trump said. "What a turnout!"
Trump, who is notoriously obsessed about drawing large crowds, was quickly hammered on the internet for treating a hurricane relief effort like yet another one of his campaign rallies.
